For the first time in our history, TAI now offers a Graphite Fiber Thermal Strap (GFTS®) Standard Product Line, and we've just released our 2018 GFTS® Catalog. This is the world's only graphite/carbon-based thermal strap standard line, and the only flexible, carbon-based thermal strap product with spaceflight heritage.
The new catalog features 6 standard models, made with our GraFlex I graphite bundles/ropes, and available in nearly any shape, with customizable end fittings...and all without the burden of expensive NRE and design fees!

This marks the first time in the industry's history, that customers with limited budgets--even those with ground-based or airborne applications that traditionally would have used a copper or aluminum strap--can now afford a space qualified, flexible graphite/carbon-based strap, for about the same cost as a competing stacked metallic foil strap (saving tens of thousands of dollars in the typical prototype program).
